I had a friend watch our gals for 4 days this week. She said she had no problems. Yesterday we moved the ladies to a new grazing area, letting them free-range for the day while we moved them. One of the hens did not make it to the coop last night, and I figured she'd be gone come morning - as we have a bit of a coyote problem in our area. But I saw her strutting around the morning, happily still free-ranging. I opened up the coop this morning and didn't notice anything off (though still rubbing the grogginess from my eyes at that point). I come back less than an hour later to find this 2 year old gal dead, breast down, with no signs of struggle or bites. The coop is in good order, no holes anywhere except a slit where a young snake could squeeze through. I'm about to go do an autopsy. Is there anything I should look for? Any and all help on a diagnosis would be appreciated greatly! Circle of life. Just another chance to learn something. EDIT: Here's the link to the autopsy. I hope it's not too offensive at times.
